If you toss in the smokes, Hicks' daily beer run is aggressively moving to match this guy, in reverse.
Daily Beer Run Leads to $338 Million Powerball Win
A 44 year old New Jersey family man hit the Powerball jackpot when he made his daily stop at a liquor store for a few beers and some lotto. Thanks to his dedication to having a few cold ones every day he’s looking at $152 million dollars if he takes the lump sum.

Great take on daily schedule of a working man, I bet those creditors of his are either working hard to get what he's owed or getting him to back their scam.I heard NJ rep saying how great it was a NJ winner was for them.Could he be the next sponsor of the NJ tax rate or move somewhere they won't take the rest of it?
Queue friends and family that you've never met along with the ones you already know and be prepared for years and years of sob stories and asking for handouts. He should be ready to give the neighborhood a nice donation and move to an undisclosed location.
A public-record search shows he has been slapped with about 10 liens totaling more than $25,000 between 1998 and 2011.
I know where this is going.
Wouldn't people end up getting "more" of their lottery winnings if the chose the annual payouts? I don't understand the "lump sum" obsession...you're forfeiting way too much of that money aren't you??
@FLprodivider66 People would rather have the lump some & then be able to give & put away some for family than getting a monthly pay-off, die & then have to deal with all the legal crap that follows I guess.
@FLprodivider66 Eh will it works out if you take the lump sum and are smart enough to invest it at any reasonable rate of return. If you get 152 million and are making around 5 percent interest you will wind up with the 338 million after the 20 year payout.
@Moon Rocks lol, there's a surprising amount of horror stories that are connected w/ lottery winnings that's rarely ever talked about or referenced.
@Binary Daoist Hey??? (Fez voice)
@JonNockels Or believing!
@Stilltryingregardless @FLprodivider66 If u don't take the lump sum youll never see the rest of the money when the economy goes to shit in ten years. Take the money, run to the mountains build a castle and fill it with guns
